    BTW, MFA is the acronym for Masters of Fine Arts, which is the equilvalent to a Ph.D in the fine arts faculty (except art history).

    P.S.: I don't like Coffee Bean and Tea Leaves coffees. Starbucks only....

    I am keen too..... PM sent

    I believe we shouldn't crash into victoru's thread.

    We all appreciate Photobums' effort. I'd like very much to learn for free as well. Suggest photobum create another thread regarding his plans

    Till then, let's stop OT on victoru's thread. There are people who're sincerely wanting to learn and get certification.

    Cheers!

    Pardon my OT a bit here. I just found out that it will cost me $65 an hour to rent a classroom with a LCD projector, and 15 desks and chairs. Therefore, it isn't practical for me to offer this course for free anymore.

    Also, material printing costs are high.

    I apologise for this. Please read the post above. The free course isn't practical.

    Hi photobum, since you're manageing 2 studios, why not conduct the course there?

    Anyway, giver your MFA status, I'm sure all of us would gladly pay for the $65/hr and any printing cost. If it is a 2 hrs lesson every session, cost will be $65 X 2 + $50 for printing, total will be $180/- divided by 15 students = $12/-.
    Given your MFA degree, working professional photographer status, manager of 2 studio with teams of photography and DI staff and ability to teach us how to sell our service, $12/- is chicken feet. I'm sure all of us will be more than willing to pay $12/- to attend your lessons. How?
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time
